Need some ru­ral Ben­gal dose

The New Indian Express - - INDIA -

De­spite re­li­gious fes­tive sea­son go­ing to get over in Kolkata and Ben­gal, win­ters pro­vide some se­ri­ous cul­tural fes­ti­vals per­tain­ing to baul (wan­der­ing mys­tics of Ben­gal) and ru­ral arts fes­ti­vals in dif­fer­ent parts of ru­ral Ben­gal in­clud­ing San­tinike­tan in Birb­hum district and Karim­pur in Na­dia district. So, many of the Kolkatans are get­ting ready with their recorders and cam­eras to cap­ture the true essence of Ben­gal which many of the city res­i­dents miss in their clock­work rou­tine. Th­ese fes­ti­vals in the win­ter give an excuse to the city dwellers to in­hale some fresh air and lis­ten to some nat­u­ral mu­sic of the na­ture and not the honk­ing of horns.
